The current featherweight and lightweight champion wasn’t putting his fight skills to the test however, he was simply celebrating with teammate Artem Lobov.

After watching Lobov record an unanimous decision over Teruto Ishihara, McGregor left his seat and scaled the perimeter to offer his congratulations during the UFC Fight Night.
